Galloping to a PR

On Sunday, October 23, I ran the Capital City Classic 15k race for the first time. Having never run a 15k race before, I did not really know what to expect. But I knew some of the course from running the Lincoln Marathon previously. This race was formerly known as the...

Sleep & Insomnia: Counting Sheep Strategies

Back in September 2015, I hosted a blab about Sleep and Insomnia: Counting Sheep Strategies. It was an excellent discussion with a new friend from Southern California. Enjoy the wide-ranging discussion that ventured from sleep, insomnia, fatigue, exhaustion, and ultra training and into meditation and mindfulness. With my ongoing health coaching, this issue of sleep […]

Restlessness

Do you ever get restless when it comes to body, mind, and spirit? And if so, is it a good thing or not? Lately, I’ve been dealing with restlessness internally and have been trying to process it that past few weeks, figure out why, and how to use it to my advantage. In writing this, […]

Doggedly Running: Top 10 Tips

Running with dogs: it’s an adventure! Do you run with your pets? It definitely enhances the experience of running but it presents some challenges. For example, always keep a tight grip on the leash. Dogs love to run and explore, frequently in directions or ways that may deviate a bit from the human directional spirit […]

Restoring Monday Mile Routine

Happy Move it Monday and first day of February! Today I recorded a brief Periscope message on the restoration of my Monday Mile easy running day routine. Deviating from this recently has caused me to be more fatigued and I’m finding that I haven’t really been taking it easy one day a week. If I’m […]

Bronzed Middle Ages

Racing through the Middle Ages…I mean my middle ages… First of all, I hope you are not upset at me blending the Bronze and Middle Ages together. I’m not trying to be historically confusing. But I’m middle-aged and well, more about the bronze… Saturday, I ran the Energy 5k as part of the Cornhusker State […]

May the 4th be with You!

Howdy pardners! How are you? It’s Lincoln Marathon weekend and I forgot to taper (HATE TAPERING!), so no marathon running for me this weekend. My daughter and I are volunteering to help for several hours so I’ll be on the giving end of water, sports drinks, gels, and “runner snacks” instead of the receiving end […]

Beware the STRIDES of March!

Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears: Remember the “Beware the IDES of MARCH” line in Julius Caesar (Act I, Scene 2 for us Shakespeare geeks), the famous Shakespeare play? Caesar foolishly ignored the warning of the soothsayer and the rest is history. Well, tomorrow is the Ides of March (March 15). And running is […]

CAN YOU FEEL THE POWER OF REST?

And Now for Something Completely Different…something I know absolutely nothing about as a run-streaker: The POWER OF REST! R-E-S-T, you know that four-letter word that runners love to hate? That word is critical to runners’ growth, development, and recovery. I used to think rest only meant “running days off”. But I’ve learned that the run-streakers […]
